Whoever thought that Versace will somehow become a diluted version of it’s former self post Michael Kors acquisition, would’ve felt the slap of neon colours and crystals from last night’s showcase.
Donatella cast an array of high profile models, think Kaia Gerber, Imaan Hammam, Emily Ratajkowski and Bella Hadid, to strut out in all the brand’s signature looks including the familiar prints, citrusy shades, embellished denim, leather and lace.
The Ford logo looked slightly out of place among the feather trim coats and plaid suits, but it highlighted the fun nature of the brand that we have grown to expect. The harnesses and hardware was a nod to the sensuality that often presented itself during the Gianni era, while the middle section of the show packed with print clashes, bold colourways, sneakers, logo socks and Nineties jeans felt perfectly retro.
“Layered looks and seemingly random clash of elements, colours, jewellery, accessories, prints and shapes give men the possibility and courage to test the extent of masculinity and to tell their own story,” the brand writes on their social media.
The Versace glamour clan need not to worry, there is plenty on offer including neat tailoring, lace, leather, fitted silhouettes, timeless bikers and bold accessories. Among all the embellishment were the simpler pieces like the black blazers accented at the shoulders, silk shirts and printed knits that truly highlight Versace’s strong position in the fashion landscape.
